How to Get Glass Out of Your Foot

Splinters are things that get stuck under the skin. Like a wooden splinter that you can get from touching a rough piece of wood, a glass splinter is a thin, sharp piece of glass that breaks the skin’s surface. The glass piece will look like a sliver of glass, having broken off a larger chunk of glass. 

Glass pieces can be hard to see, so it’s not uncommon to get a glass splinter in areas where broken glass might be present. Common causes of getting glass stuck in your foot are being barefoot while cleaning up a broken glass object in the home or stepping on broken glass—such as from a broken glass bottle—while walking outside without shoes.

This article talks about how to remove a piece of glass from your foot yourself and when you might need to see a healthcare provider.
